Celine Dion - Beauty And The Beast Lyrics
(feat. Peablo Bryson)

Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
Then somebody bends
Unexpectedly

Just a little change
Small, to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the beast

Ever just the same
Ever a surprise
Ever as before
Ever just as sure
As the sun will rise

Ever just the same
Ever a surprise
Ever as before
Ever just as sure
As the sun will rise

Tale as old as time
Tune as old as song
Bittersweet and strange
Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong

Certain as the sun
Certain as the sun
Rising in the east
Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the beast

Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the beast

Beauty and the beast

This song was originally recorded by actress Angela Lansbury for the Disney animated feature film "Beauty and the Beast" (1991). Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson recorded it for the film's soundtrack. It was released as its only single on the 25th of November 1991.


When Disney needed a radio-friendly version of this track for the film's promotion, they decided to release "Beauty and the Beast" as a single performed only by Celine Dion. But they hesitated that she could attract an audience in the USA and invited the more popular Peabo Bryson to be her duet partner.


This track won Golden Globe Award, Academy Award for Best Original Song, Grammy Awards for Best Song Written for Visual Media and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.


This single became commercial success, reached number nine on the Billboard Hot 100, and boosted Celine Dion's career.
The American Film Institute officially recognized "Beauty and the Beast" as one of the greatest songs in film history, and put it on the 62nd position in 2004.
